under mostly cloudy conditions for the brunt of your afternoon. we'll try to track in more widely scattered rain late evening. temperatures right now 61 degrees. good morning lake county, 58. upper 50s still, we're on the mild side for wayne county. now, the big weather story well to our south hurrican matthew, category 4 has been downgraded from overnight. so last night about this category 5 hurricane, it's now a 4. we're talking about sustained winds to 160 miles per hour. sustained winds. that's a constant wind speed. so you can see the track right now is lifting north, jamaica in that path. then it's going to continue to rev up here. as it lifts to the north, we're hoping it loses its force here, but we'll continue to track this all the way through monday to possibly tuesday afternoon.
8:48 am
weather story is the overcast skies and the dreary conditions, but still by the 4:00 hour, we're looking at daytime highs lower 70s. so i want to show you our rain chances. we start to really increase by the 7:00 hour, but that low will continue to move north, and that's going to allow for gradually sunshine to really appear. tomorrow is looking okay, but temperatures slightly cooler. let's show you a breakdown here from our futu you can see some spotty showers from summit county. we're dry for most of the evening. i'll be here at 11:00 tonight, and then that's when we're going to start to track in more widely spread rain chances here across the board. heavy-duty rains start to make their way through the overnight. could see a few rumbles of thunder. church services to early morning brunch tomorrow, we are

8:50 am
we try to hanle. so storm sewers made by man go up in the water, directing the rain into natural waterways. eventually it gets to a little head water or small stream and goes to a larger stream. >>reporter: roy larrick is a geologist. he and tori mills, executive director of the dome brook awardshed project celebrate the beauty of -- beauty of a waterway winding through the heights and the cleveland east side neighborhoods, celebrated is dawn brook. >> you'll cover a lot of the geology well and i talk about some of the history. roy and tony talks about how it begins in shaker heights, gently beginning northward. they study the roots, interestingly where it changes cakier character into a shaker heights lake. generations ago, a religious group called the north union shakers harnessed part of the dome. they made several shaker heights lakes this way. in the aerial 1800s, the north union shakers did the first
8:51 am
could then put in a water wheel and turn a shaft and that could help them grind grain, operate machinery, saws and the like. >>reporter: from the dams of the shaker lakes now recreational areas, the brook water moves quietly while people go about their lives, the rainfall now at brook level pushes on. those of us who track it push on with it. >> if you were to it follow this water, brook, >> we would end up in lake erie after a few obstacles, shall we say. >>reporter: downstream the dome plunges. we are in a steep valley near the shaker heights intersection of kemper and fair hill roads. what nature created thousands of years ago humans sometimes refit for man's use. about 190 years ago using this waterfall, the shakers built a grist mill to grind their
8:52 am
on the east side in the 1830s. there was nothing like it. >> there >>reporter: there is human industrial history right here. >> this is human industrial history. >>reporter: we're in the area where cleveland heights, shaker heights and the city of cleveland all kind of come together. this is a gorge here of the dome brook. during heavy rainfall times, that gorge can actually fill up with water, a real heavy day, you don't even see the rock at all. but that's our old friend, brook, and it's headed that way bound for lake erie. but, surprise. once the brook reaches cleveland's university circle it disappears, well, not really. humans just redirected its fall for a stretch into cullverts below concrete cleveland and the city's chris-crossing traffic, a marker above ground announces doan brook below ground. do you think the people who are driving along this section of
8:53 am
brook is underneath them? >> they are always surprised to know that. >>reporter: a half mile later it reemerging, now on its last few miles leg traveling inside stone walls erected to prevent erosion. from cleveland's rockefeller park, skipping playfully near the cultural gardens in the glenville neighborhood, the brook babbles for lake erie, a story many thousands of years old, but which can have a romantic touch. love and romance on just ask the doan brook watershed project tori mills. her life began with the family love story five generations ago. >> my family actually had a farm along the doan brook and apparently my great, great grandparents met when they were gathering water down at the springs. the doan brook obviously played some role into them getting together. >>reporter: there is something romantic about it.
8:54 am
have their wedding pictures taken here. >> water is inspiration. >>reporter: biography of a brook which tells its old story to those who knew how to read it. there is that manmade lake chapter an the chapter on settlers harnessing brook power to grind grain and other sioux. long before humans, the brook was writing its story. it still writes how it crooks through ohio. the doan brook never sleeps because it knowing this water has a ways to go for its appointed date with lake erie. leon bibb, news 5 on doan brook. >> all right, leon, thank you. one week from today there will be an educational hike around both horseshoe and lower shaker lakes. hikers will be able to learn more about the doan brook an how settlers even used it to help shape our current

8:59 am
walls, settling foundations and a sinking slab. what causes those? >> really it's all the same thing. it's unstable soil. so the soil around northeast ohio is primarily clay, so what happens is it gets wet, and then it dries out and then it -- so it exans and contracts. well, when the soil expands, it pushes in on the foundation which causes it to move in one direction. when it begins to shrink, it allows gap, air gaps where the it. so that expansion and contraction is what causes most of the problems. >> wow! gayle, tell me what are the options a homeowner has to fix these? >> well, there are many options and there's too many options to talk about here today. so the best thing a homeowner could do would be to call our office and we'll get a free -- we'll give them a free inspection and a free estimate. >> to fit their needs. so for more information log onto their website, it's

9:02 am
movie night violently interrupted by a home invasion and the suspects now still on the loose right now. meg shaw live at metro health medical center for us where the victim is recovering. meg, what is the latest for us? >>reporter: well, nick, we're not getting very detailed information from police this morning about what happened during the invasion. they say it's very early in the investigation. now, i did talk to family members here at the hospital as well as the head nurse with metro. the family identifying that victim as elyria and the head nurse telling me williams has been in surgery for several hours this morning. they say he's in critical condition. they plan to move him to the i.c.u. after surgery. now, elyria police tell us the invasion happened at this apartment complex on middle avenue around dplien 30 friday night. they say three suspects barged into the victim's home, shot him twice in the left shoulder an in the left forearm. they also say williams was stabbed on the left side of his abs. they say a 32-year-old woman an three young girls were home --
9:03 am
at the time. the family at the hospital telling me williams' three children were threatened by the suspects, but were not harmed. right now we don't know the motive behind the invasion. now, police did not release a detailed description of the suspects. they just say they're still on the run this morning. so if you know anything about this incident, please call elyria police. live at metro, meg shaw, news 5. >> we're still waiting for a lot of information from police about this case. thank you, meg. also new from overnight, a 15-year-old girl, an shot. the two were shot around 11:30 last night at west 143rd street in alsetta. no word yet on their conditions, but we do know that both are -- do know that both are at metro health hospital. now to the growing battle against the heroin epidemic. skyrocketing drug overdoses have prompted a new warning for everyone in ohio. it appears another deadly batch of heroin has hit the streets. there were at least eight overdose calls in ross county within the last 24 hours. friends and family of users are
9:04 am
loved ones' live they overdose. police also calling this a crisis. earlier this week the columbus area saw 35 heroin overdoses in just one day. thankfully there is a new strategy out to keep people from becoming addicted in the first place. as of today there are new rules for doctors prescribing painkillers. the new law is specific to on- the-job injuries. employees will not be able to seek workers' comp reimbursement for opioid prescriptions unless very strict guidelines are followed. their doctor has painkillers are the best option available. now, the hope is that these new rules will help keep people from becoming addicted in the first place. opiate addiction can often lead to heroin addiction if left untreated. another heartbreaking example of the heroin epidemic in our community. cleveland police officers -- or police posted this image on social media. it shows these officers finding a man semi conscious on thursday afternoon. they immediately realized he was in the midst of a heroin overdose. they called ems, but the man
9:05 am
so the officers then traded off doing cpr, were able to keep that man alive until ems arrived. he was taken to metrohealth hospital to recover. moving now to the future of troubled browns wide receiver josh gordon. here we go again. we ask the nfl's vice president of communications if gordon's suspension will come to an end monday as previously scheduled even though he is now checking himself into rehab. the official skirted the issue by telling us the nfl's only concern is with gordon's well- bein gordon's focus must be on his health, but coach hugh jackson also added that it's best for the team to move forward on and move on leaving many wondering if goreon will actually be cut from the team. but it's very likely his time with the cleveland browns is over. they are already grieving the loss of their loved ones, now dozens of families who have spent thousands of dollars for cemetery plots and headstones have nothing to honor them. ohio's attorney general is
9:06 am
revena. one family we talked to says they paid $8,000 for two burial plots and a headstone at grandview memorial park cemetery. they only found out that their loved one's body was moved to a different plot without their knowledge. >> i feel like i've been robbed an my husband is -- and my husband is not in the place where he's supposed to be, and i don't know if i'm really going to be in one of those next to him or not. >> imagine finding that out. the owners of that cemetery, though, refused to comm seeking full restitution and $25,000 in penalties for all 26 families impacted by the cemetery problems. well, traffic alert this morning for anyone planning on taking the rta rapid. construction on the inner belt bridge causing some changes to the schedules. the red, blue and green line trains are not running east of tower city this weekend. instead, there will be additional buses running to get you to your destination. the trains, though, will be back in time for that monday
